Egypt’s President-elect Morsi Moves from rented Flat to Presidential palace

Egypt’s President-elect Mohammed Morsi until yesterday lived in a spartan rented flat on the outskirts of Cairo. This photo above shows an emotional send-forth as Morsi said goodbye to his landlord (right) as he was being escorted by the Presidential guard to the presidential residence…


1. The first group of Egyptians invited by new president-elect Morsi to presidential residence are the families of the martyrs of the Egyptian revolution. Khaled Said’s mother has now arrived at the presidential ceremonial palace to be welcomed by the president shortly.
